Kalle Berglund got to a cannon race of 4,59,71. Thus, he became the first Swede to run the distance for five minutes. With 200 meters left to run, Berglund put in another gear and ran away from the cluster and later also ran for Anders Gnaderud's record.
- It was long, quite boring in the middle. The goal was to win and I succeeded, says Berglund to SVT.
Kalle Berglund suffered from covid-19 in March but has managed to recover well from the viral disease.
- I have a lot to fall back on. It is easy to fall back to your old level. I have returned to the decent basic level I was in last summer and autumn.
Andreas Almgren also ran a cannon race and ran to the finish in the time of 5.00.23.
